For the record, here is attached a list of the external references of
braille drivers (list-brl, filtered out a bit). Apart from standard C
functions, I can see

- timing functions

- bluetooth functions
- serial functions
- usb functions
- io port functions

- dots/character conversion

- logging

- a couple of helpers like isInteger or reallocWrapper which could
  probably be fetched from the brltty source.

- queueing keypresses

Actually, I'm even wondering whether we could just drop support for
braille device keys. Of course, full-fledged support would be great, but
that makes maintainability more difficult.

For the braille translation part, I tried to link together

parse.o file.o queue.o dataarea.o datafile.o ttb_compile.o

and it gave me the second list of symbols (list-ttb).  A couple of them
are probably not needed in this context actually (like mkdir).
